Ireland's Ancient East Motorcycle Tour

Our Ancient East is perfect for riders who want to see Ireland’s heritage and enjoy superb riding routes. You’ll be on your bike every day, exploring the best that Ireland’s east coast has to offer!

We have selected riding routes with an emphasis on scenery and being off the beaten path. 

This is a relatively new tour which we introduced last but not new to the Lemonrock team, who know this area intimately – as Paul, our co-founder, lives here!

This ride takes in some of the favoured riding routes from the Dublin motorcycling enthusiasts.  We ride south east into Co. Wicklow, which is known as The Garden of Ireland, due to its wonderful scenery.  It equally excels as a riding destination which these passes and destinations to enjoy:-
